Bulb C7 E12 - Full Spectrum - PK2 is rated
Rated 2 out of
Barely adequate for night lights
These cast extremely directional, and very cold light. Both of those attributes are undesirable for traditional night lights which usually depend on casting most of their light sideways in order to light up the shade/lens on the night light. The colour temperature is a matter of preference but "warm white" is usually preferable for this purpose also. I do find them dimmer than traditional night light bulbs too.
Build quality is not great (the circuit board is just kind of stuffed in there and mounted at an angle due to poor fitment), and they consist of just a single LED each. They're priced OK for what you're getting, but it's too bad the product is so lacking.
If your use for these bulbs will not be affected negatively by cold light and the fact they shine somewhat like flashlights (light out the end, not out the sides), they should be fine for you. I'm using one in the bottom half of an antique dual-circuit table lamp and it works OK to cast a little glow as an accent light, but it's not the ideal choice.
